About Me

My name is Clariss Rufaro Masiya a young Zimbabwean woman aged 24. I am also a Christian and a feminist hence, the term Christian-feminist pops up whenever I describe myself. Being a young girl raised in a ‘typical’ African home I still struggle with identity issues but I have over the years overcome some of my adversities and live to tell tales that motivate other young girls and my journey continues. Speech and the ability to play with words has always been one of my strongest suits and I often express my thoughts and my beliefs through poetry. My main focus is on empowering young people especially young girls socially economically and politically
